We enjoyed a lazy afternoon relaxing at Shangri La the Fort swimming pool after the strenuous Synrgy 360 class that morning. 

Breathing in the fresh air and appreciating the silence was a needed respite from the hectic pace of Manila City.

In addition to a spacious gym, you will find spacious exercise studios for group classes such as yoga, spin, Pilates, mixed martial arts, HIIT, and more.

During our three-day stay at the Shangri-La at the Fort, so we were able to experience several different classes along with the fitness center. 

Spin Classes

Pumping to music and pushing yourself to new challenges is what you will get from a spin class at Kerry Sports. 

The instructor will “push” you through hills, sprints, and endurance rides, with music pumping to get you going. 

This class is accessible, and depending on your fitness level, you can choose to push hard or go at your own pace. 

Yoga Classes

The class schedule changes every week, be sure to pick up the latest at Kerry Sports

On the morning of our departure, we started the day in the yoga studio at Kerry Center for a  Vinyasa yoga class. 

In a class of about 20 participants, our instructor guided the class gently, maintaining the body/spirit connection throughout the yoga room.

Rosemary, who is not flexible at all, appreciated the personalized adjustments made by the instructor throughout the class. As a first-timer, Claire was able to get into the flow of the class with ease.

Yoga lovers can choose from several different classes. Be sure to pick up the latest schedule of hours at the facility.

SYNRGY 360 Class / HIIT

We had never heard of Synrgy 360 before and were intrigued, yet intimidated, by the huge apparatus with several workout modules.

The friendly Kerry Sports trainer put us at ease while demonstrating each workout.

This innovative system combines a variety of dynamic exercises targeting different muscle groups. 

In a small group of 6, we pushed ourselves for about one hour using non-traditional equipment such as ropes and tires.

  1. Love the details. I’m Filipina and go to Manila every so often. Thanks so much for this. I agree it’s hard to find places to run in the city. I didn’t even know about this place the last time I was there. I have only gone to Bikram yoga as I’m a huge fan of it. Now I can add this next time I’m there.

    • That’s awesome that as a local you agree with our assessment of the difficulty in finding great places to run in Manila. Fortunately, Kerry Sports gives you many options and choices. Do check it out the next time you are in Manila.Thanks for your comments!!

  2. You have just reminded me how I need to get back in shape. Unfortunately when I travel, I mostly go to remote places where with natural treadmills ??. I would like to try the Vinyasa Yoga. Kerry Sports is huge, well equipped and makes one long for fitness. Great post. Nice photos as well.

    • Thank you so much Bonita. Really glad to hear you enjoyed the post and photos 🙂 As long as you have options on your travels, that’s awesome. Kerry Sports is a great option for those without any options in Manila. Wishing you safe and active travels. Cheers!

    • Hi Anya, when you eat for a living, exercise and keeping fit takes on new meaning. Kerry Sports and the Shangri-La offer a great balance of fitness activities and relaxation options. It is possible to do both and enjoy 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.

  3. wow this looks sooo amazing! I’m visiting the Philippines in a couple of weeks and I’ve heard it’s not the best place for a solo female traveler. What do you think??

    • Hi Felicia, as with travel anywhere (even at home), be cognizant of your surroundings and you will be okay. We felt pretty safe walking at night and in the local areas. You will have a great time. As you indulge in all the Filipino delights, don’t hesitate to check out Kerry Sports….Thanks for your comments and feel free to reach out with additional questions. Safe travels.

  4. Impressive studio and a great and thorough review. I’m in Manila right now, there is a gym in the hotel I am staying, but it is nowhere near the one you are describing here. Maybe need to look into that again for my next trip. Thanks!

  5. Great pics & just the thing to throw yourself into after a holiday where you’ve indulged a little too much in the foodery!!

    I’d love a good yoga session, maybe a dip in the pool and followed up with a sauna.

    • Thanks Anna for your comments. You can’t beat working out and staying fit when traveling for food 🙂 Yoga, the pool and sauna are perfect, especially at a great fitness center like Kerry Sports. Check them out if your travels take you to the Philippines. Cheers!
